After examine the way Jan Beany and Jean Littlejohn do their sketchbooks I wanted to try draw and paint with color.
The wonderful strong colors in the garden of our hotel inspired me to paint with watercolour and white . I had much fun by concentration and trying to observe the plants in detail.
But afterwards I often had the feeling it´s too intensive, too much colour. The wish arose to paint in pale grey, pink, beige ….the colors of the buildings and walls between the fields.
In addition I wanted to examine the color with dots. By Judy Martin´s blog https://judys-journal.blogspot.com/, I came over with the artwork of Carol Mahtab https://www.google.de/search?q=carol+mahtab+artist&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjDsfX_vN3bAhXD3KQKHYIhCBEQ_AUICigB&biw=1399&bih=909, and her sketchbooks – a wonderful inspiration!
The last version relates directly to the walls and I feel very satisfied with the outcome. The pasty appearance and the mixed colors in 1 dot I like very much. It remembers me to the stones sawn everywhere. I will see how this will be translated into new artwork.
